GoDaddy To Discontinue Bulk Appraisal Tool

At the 2018 NamesCon Global conference, GoDaddy publicly debuted its free bulk domain name appraisal tool. The tool was based off of the GoDaddy domain appraisal tool that had been revamped. The bulk tool provided a bit more quantitative data, and it allowed clients to appraise up to 100,000 domain names.

The bulk appraisal tool has not been promoted much by GoDaddy, and I learned that the company is discontinuing this tool as of tomorrow, June 8. Here’s the message that appears on the bulk appraisal tool home page:

“.Over four years have passed since we released our bulk appraisal tool. At the time of release, it was always intended to be available only for a limited time. On June 8th GoDaddy will discontinue this tool. The good news is customers with a Premier Services account can still obtain bulk domain appraisals monthly through their account manager.”

While the tool is disappearing from public view, bulk appraisals will still be available available. Premier services clients can request an appraisal from their account manager on a monthly basis.

I used the tool on occasion to appraise large lists of domain names. I occasionally used it to evaluate large domain name auction lists and private sales lists of domain names. While I didn’t necessary trust the tool could provide accurate valuation figures, it was helpful in separating domain names that had some value from domain names that were not worth anything.

I don’t really understand why GoDaddy has opted to kill off a tool like this from public view, but perhaps it wasn’t used enough to dedicate any resources to maintaining it.

Thank you to Tony from for letting me know about this.

  1. Average person would never use an automated bulk domain appraisal service. Plus, it is very inaccurate.
    If you have to appraise your domains using an automated domain appraisal calculator, you should not be investing in domains.

  2. They are creating a new tool that is not ready yet. But will be released to Premiere clients one day. That is the answer I got from premiere services
